British Leona Lewis tops US charts

Leona Lewis

For decades, it has been an unattainable goal for many British pop stars to get number one in The Billboard Hit 100 chart. And here we go! Yesterday X Factor winner Leona Lewis became the first British female in over two decades to top the American charts, with her debut single Bleeding Love, according to Daily Mail.

Lewis, 22, confessed it was her dream to crack the US market, which is extremely lucrative but notoriously hard to crack. “I really don’t know what to say. I’m so overwhelmed right now. I’m getting to share my music with people around the world and it’s beyond my wildest dreams. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much. It’s because of you that I am able to do this,” the singer said on Oprah Winfrey show.

Her mentor Simon Cowell added: “I am incredibly proud of Leona, what she has achieved in the past year is simply amazing.” Cowell helped Leona win ITV1’s X Factor in 2006 after winning over the public with her extraordinary singing voice and sweet personality.

“All I want to do is my music and just hearing my single on the radio the other day brought a tear to my eye; I was so happy.” Leona confessed.

Just two British female solo artists before Leona have gone to number one with their debut single in America. Petula Clark was the first in 1965 with Downtown, and Sheena Easton’s Morning Train followed in 1981. I must confess I don’t remember these ladies. Time will show if Leona Lewis manages to hit big time in the States, you know, competition is really huge here. Good luck to you Leona! I just wonder what Heidi Montag thinks about all that.
